About Villa Kayu


Villa Kayu is a huge private paradise that features traditional Javanese teak wooden houses called Joglo's, wrapping around the gorgeous tropical garden. Villa Kayu is certainly a dream come for large families or groups of friends, seeking for a traditional holiday retreat with modern luxuries, located somewhere peaceful yet not too far from the islands most happening hot spots. Villa Kayu gives you the best of both worlds, tucked in the rice paddies of Umalas while the centre of Seminyak and the beaches of Canggu are just a short drive away.

Outdoor and pool area


A teak wooden gate leads into the expansive tropical garden of villa Kayu, filled with lush exotic greenery, tribal artwork and peaceful lotus ponds with fountains. From the entrance you can already see the stunning swimming pool sparkling at the end of the garden, creating the social heart of the estate. It's easy to fall in love instantly with this private slice of paradise that draws you closer to the natural beauty of Umalas. Shaded daybeds make idyllic places for a day-time nap in the midst of this lush green Eden to the sounds of soft wind breezes and rippling water from the fountains that surround a giant Buddha statue.

The living area


You are welcomed in the lobby Joglo, surrounded by ponds. A restful space with a sublime view over the garden and pool, perfect for day-time relaxing on one of the sofas, watching the kids play. The main living room is tucked in a massive wooden Joglo with its charismatic high soaring roof and complete openness to the garden, creating a wonderfully tropical home that not only features authentic architecture but also gorgeous hand-carved antique wooden furniture and an amazing collection of artwork and rich textiles from different islands across Indonesia. The overall ambiance is rustic, sophisticated and ethnic. You may not expect it in such as traditional villa, but villa Kayu also features superb modern facilities. In fact there is a separate family Joglo that features a cinema lounge and a billiard table to keep young and old entertained.

The master bedroom


The master suite is found in a secluded stand-alone Joglo, for extra privacy. This spacious bungalow features leather carpets on the teak floor and in the centre stands a stunning king-size bed draped by white curtains. The room is adjoined by a dressing room and a large garden en-suite, boasting a huge river-rock bathtub and a rain-shower.

The guest bedrooms


Two of the guest bedrooms share one Joglo, great for families and the third guest bedroom is tucked in a private Joglo. The bedrooms are warm and cozy, dressed in white curtains and wooden walls. The bedroom walls can be opened up for guests to enjoy scenic views from the comfort of their bedroom. The rooms have air-conditioning, king-size beds convertible into twins and dressing-rooms where you will find safety boxes and mini-bars for your convenience. Bathrooms are semi open, with bathtubs among the rocks and plants of the private bathroom gardens.

Staff and services


Highly trained staff awaits you at villa Kayu, welcoming you with warm Balinese hospitality and making sure everything is perfect during your stay. There is a villa manager who can arrange in-villa massages, transport, day-trips and more. There is also an excellent chef, butlers, housekeeping and security guards.

Around Villa Kayu


Villa Kayu is located at the end of a quiet lane in Umalas, just a short drive away from the centre of Seminyak and the hot spots of Canggu. Umalas still has lots of emerald rice paddies all around, providing you with a real 'back to nature' feel and yet in no time you will be standing in the vibrant and colourful streets of Seminyak where you can shop till you drop, wine and dine at the renowned 'eat street' and dance till late at happening night clubs such as Ku De Ta and Potato Head.
